It Is Never Too Early To Start Planning For Your Future

While it may seem like long term care planning is just for the elderly, it’s never too early — or too late — to start planning for your future. If you want to plan for a family, create a will, set up an estate or prepare for retirement, having a plan in place will ensure that you and your loved ones are taken care of properly.

If you have questions or concerns about planning for your future, the experienced elder law attorneys at Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, can help. Whether you’re post-retirement or just starting your career, or newly married and in your 20s, it’s never too early to prepare for what may lie ahead.

Why Long Term Care Planning Is Important

As with most things in life — selecting which college to go to, buying a house or deciding to embark on an ew adventure — it is important to plan ahead when it comes to your future. Long-term care planning can protect you and your family in the event that someone becomes ill, disabled or needs assistance due to the natural aging process. Some of the ways an elder law attorney can help you include:

  • Drafting enforceable, effective wills and trusts
  • Planning for a financially secure retirement
  • Determining long-term care benefit options, such as Medicaid, and protecting your assets in the process
  • Discussing options regarding nursing homes and long-term care facilities
  • Establishing a guardianship or special needs trust

At Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, we will work with you to determine your specific needs and create a plan so that you are in control of your life as much as possible. Each attorney on our team is highly knowledgeable and experienced in long-term care and elder law planning.
